Here’s the easiest way to test breast cancer at home Julia Mullaney More Articles September 07, 2018 It’s incredibly important to get an annual mammogram if you’re over 40 years old. But normally you only have a mammogram once a year and checking in between those annual appointments is important. Checking for breast cancer at home is easy; the best way to do that is here. 5/5.498

Why should you have breast cancer tests at home?

Most doctors don’t suggest regular mammograms until at least 40. If you have a history of the disease, it may be younger but it is not usually recommended before that. Nonetheless, breast cancer can strike at any time so you should start checking yourself for any sign of the disease in your early 20s to make sure you avoid it. Mammograms are just regular and cancer obviously will develop shortly after an annual breast exam. When you check yourself at home frequently, you will note some new lumps or symptoms of the disease that would otherwise not be detected until the next year. The faster you spot it the better chance you get to beat it. Grant yourself a breast check at least once a month

Once a month you are acquainted with how your breasts feel. This way it is easier for you to spot the slightest abnormality. Three different ways you can give yourself an exam according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and each of them focuses on something special.

In a mirror Position your back straight and your arms on your sides and look at your breasts in the mirror. Note how your boobs look. Pay attention to the shape and colour of their body. Has anything changed since you tested them out last time? (If this is the first time you note just what the potential comparison looks like.) Is there any significant swelling in one or both breasts or a shift of color that you haven’t used to? Taking a thoughtful note of the general appearance of your breasts is the perfect way to begin your breast exam. Lift your arms too, and try some significant swelling or bumping around the axes. Examine the nipples too for any leakage of fluid that may be a sign of cancer.

You can also do this in the shower

in front of the mirror, but it’s better to be somewhere else like in the shower for this next section. With your finger pads going in a circular motion across your breast, and searching for any distinct bumps you haven’t seen before. Examine the armpits thoroughly for any suspicious bumps, too. Some bumps around the breast area are common and most are benign, which is why it is important to get acquainted with your own breasts to see where benign bumps may occur. Your doctor should however examine any bump.Robert Yaniz Jr More Papers 2/2.184 Sonic Generations Sega Though sometime in 2018 no release date was nailed down.

Mushroom and Farro Burger

The New York Times shared this vegetarian burger recipe with Michelin Star-winning chef Suvir Saran, of New York. He uses sweet potatoes in it to bind to farro grains adding rosemary and thyme to give the dish a distinct and sophisticated flavour. It takes about an hour and 10 minutes to complete the recipe plus 1 hour of chilling time and yields 10 burger patties. Each has 272 calories with 4 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein. Patties will refrigerate well for 2 to 3 days. Ingredients: 1 pound of light fleshed sweet potatoes or standard potatoes (such as Yukon gold) baked Salt to taste 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 1 fresh rosemary sprig 1 fresh thyme sprig 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper 1 pound of cremini mushroom caps finely chopped 3 shallots finely chopped 1 tablespoon of dry white wine 1?2 cup finely rubbed Parm Combine on a medium saucepan with 3 cups of water. Add salt and cover to taste and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 50 to 60 minutes until the grains are tender and start splaying. Drain well and put away. Remove needles and leaves from the sprigs of rosemary and thyme, and put 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add pepper and heat over medium-high heat, sometimes stirring until the herbs start crackling. Attach chopped peanuts and cook for 2 minutes or until golden and fragrant and stir in chopped mushrooms and kosher salt (or to taste) around 3?4 teaspoons. Cook stirring regularly until all of their liquid has been released by the mushrooms and no more liquid is in the pan for about 8 minutes. Stir in the wine and start stirring until no liquid is left in the pan again. Clear from heat and then transfer the potatoes to the bowl. Heat another tablespoon of olive oil in the saucepan over medium heat and add shallots. Cook until tender, and start browning for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms and potatoes from heat and scrape shallots into a dish. Remove farro and parmesan, and mix all together. Apply the taste of salt and pepper, and adjust seasonings. Pick up a heaped …” cup of the mixture and shape into a ball (to avoid sticking you should wet your hands). Roll ball in panko or chickpea flour and then flatten gently into a patty. Set on a plate and carry on with the remaining burger mix. Refrigerate 1 hour or more, uncovered (the longer the better). Place a rack over a sheet pan when you re ready to cook. Heat 2 table spoons of oil over high heat in a 12-inch wide non-stick frying pan. Swirl the pan over the hot oil to coat. Low to medium sun. Place 4 to 5 patties in the saucepan and cook for about 4 minutes until well browned on one side. Turn around and brown for a further 4 minutes. Take off to rack. Heat remaining oil and cook remaining patties in the oven. In a low oven keep the patties moist until ready to serve. Serve with a salad and toppings as you choose. Tesla Stock Hits High on Apple Reports

Jacqueline Sahagian More News February 18, 2014 Source: http:/www.flickr.com/photos/nichephoto/ Last year’s anonymous source talks with luxury electric car producer Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) leading to a storm of speculation about what would look like an Apple-owned Tesla. Tesla stock hit a record high during Tuesday trading in the wake of that news. During trading the stock reached a high of $205.84 and closed at $203.70 Tesla is expected on Wednesday to report results for the fourth quarter. CEO of Tesla Elon Musk officially met last spring with the genius of Apple’s acquisitions, Adrian Perica. Perica has been in charge of straightening out the chaotic strategy of Apple acquisitions since 2009 and has helped the company make a plethora of successful purchases. According to the decision by the Chronicle Apple to recruit Perica from Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) shows the company is willing to concentrate more on acquisitions. According to its most recent filing, Apple spent $525 million last quarter on buying businesses which is double what it invested in the previous year. An acquisition of Tesla will make sense on several levels for Apple even though the company has little to no automotive experience. Apple has been working on getting car manufacturers to implement its iOS operating system for use in automotive infotainment. The company has focused on luxury auto makers like Ferrari and rival saturation point for its racing arch. Apple is also targeting a similar type of customer as Tesla does with its environmentally friendly high-end, high-tech products. Many interested in buying one of Tesla’s electric vehicles are probably already Apple users so it would make sense to cater to them to have an iPad installed into the car. At least one analyst has already recommended that Apple buy Tesla. Adnaan Ahmad, an analyst at investment bank Berenberg, went so far as to write an open letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook in October calling on him to buy Tesla at a time when Apple was under extreme pressure to make better use of its billions of cash. Apple CEO Tim Cook is under increasing pressure to innovate as Apple has not introduced a new product line since the former CEO Steve Jobs released the first iPad in 2010. If he can work out how to operate a car company, a contract with Tesla will be a huge gamble that would pay off Cook handsomely.
